A new method for estimating the bolometric properties of Ibc supernovae
The bolometric properties (nickel mass, ejecta mass and kinetic energies) of 61 Ibc supernovae (SNe), including 20 gamma-ray burst and X-rayflash (GRB/XRF), 19 Ib, 13 Ic and nine Ic-BL (broad-lined)Expand

A kilonova as the electromagnetic counterpart to a gravitational-wave source
Gravitational waves were discovered with the detection of binary black-hole mergers and they should also be detectable from lower-mass neutron-star mergers. These are predicted to eject material richExpand

Localization and broadband follow-up of the gravitational-wave transient GW150914
A gravitational-wave (GW) transient was identified in data recorded by the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors on 2015 September 14. The event, initiallyExpand

A gravitational-wave standard siren measurement of the Hubble constant
On 17 August 2017, the Advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors observed the gravitational-wave event GW170817—a strong signal from the merger of a binary neutron-star system. Less than two seconds afterExpand

The optical afterglow of the short gamma-ray burst associated with GW170817
The binary neutron star merger GW170817 was the first multi-messenger event observed in both gravitational and electromagnetic waves1,2. The electromagnetic signal began approximately two secondsExpand

The Observer's Guide to the Gamma-Ray Burst-Supernova Connection
We present a detailed report of the connection between long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and their accompanying supernovae (SNe). The discussion presented here places emphasis on howExpand

GRB hosts through cosmic time - VLT/X-Shooter emission-line spectroscopy of 96 γ-ray-burst-selected galaxies at 0.1
We present data and initial results from VLT/X-Shooter emission-line spectroscopy of 96 galaxies selected by long γ-ray bursts (GRBs) at 0.1 2 by ~0.4 dex. These properties of GRB hosts and theirExpand

Discovery of the Broad-lined Type Ic SN 2013cq Associated with the Very Energetic GRB 130427A
Long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) at z < 1 are found in most cases to be accompanied by bright, broad-lined Type Ic supernovae (SNe Ic-BL). The highest-energy GRBs are mostly located at higherExpand
